Sometimes tenants face situations where everything doesn’t go as smoothly as it should. In those situations, the tenant has the possibility to make a complaint. The complaint has to be made in writing within reasonable time, and it will be replied within two weeks. The possible refund will be given to your next rent.

Complaint about the condition of an apartment

The apartments are inspected after the previous tenant has moved out but sometimes the new tenant starts moving in before the inspection, or it might have been a while since the previous tenant has moved out. All the flaws and defects have to be entered into the apartment card. If it is necessary to clean or repair something urgently, please contact Soihtu Facility Services. They have to be contacted also if flaws turn up later on when living in the apartment.

If your apartment is in a bad condition or hasn’t been cleaned or some other services concerning the apartment are not right, you can send a complaint to us via form below. Explain your complaint thoroughly – you can also attach photos as proof.

If you disagree with the deficiencies found in the apartment inspection, you can write a complaint about the apartment inspection using the form below. A reclamation must always be done within reasonable time to Soihtu Facility Services.
